The Star Magic ball is probably the closest thing we could have in Manila as the MET Gala! Ever since it’s inception I have been quite lucky to have been chosen to dress up the most beautiful and talented actresses attending the affair. This year I was fortunate to design the dresses of Shaina Magdayao and a beautiful new singer Jessica Connelly.
The ball is always about the black, white and champagne theme and When my darling friend Pam Quiniones asked me to design Shaina’s dress we both agreed that it should be very streamlined! We wanted to vear away from the norm and make it sleek, streamlined and structured.
I send a couple of ideas and created 2 for Shaina to choose from. I added a few photos of the fitting and what she eventualy wore. Jessica Connelly and I are both friends of Raymond Gutierrez who called me if I could dress her up. I know that she is such a beautiful woman that I could not say no! She looked really beautiful and I was so happy that she was able to wear me to the ball! Do take a look at my photos and enjoy the process from concept to fitting to the actual ball! Thank you to Shaina and Jessica for trusting me and to Pam Quinones who is always so on point!!!! I love you! Moments like these are why I really love my job!
